Community Rhwng: The Point Between

'Whan that Aprille'

with Fiona Owen and Cynthia Morgan  

Saturday 30 April 10am-4pm

Rhwng:  Whan that Aprille

Led by Fiona Owen and Cynthia Morgan

April, as Chaucer famously said, was when people longed to go on pilgrimage.  Each Rhwng: the Point Between event takes something from the season as its starting point, so in April, as the year greens and the sap rises, we'll explore - through writing, poetry, story and myth – spring and its energies, and the quickening way of words.

No special experience or skills are necessary. Just come as you are! Please bring something to read aloud - or sing - for the final session (optional).

 A warm welcome to all / Croeso cynnes i bawb

Rhwng:  Exploring poetry, ecology, music, religions, culture, art and philosophy.

The great Arthur Miller confronts the American dream in this dark and passionate tale.

The Audience 

Thursday 9 June 7pm
The Audience       (12A)

Winner of three Tony Awards and two Olivier Awards, National Theatre Live’s smash-hit broadcast of the original West End production of The Audience - featuring Helen Mirren’s multi-award-winning performance as Queen Elizabeth II - returns to cinemas in celebration of the monarch’s 90th birthday.

Written by Peter Morgan (The Queen) and directed by two-time Tony Award winner and Academy Award -nominated director Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot, The Hours), these special encore screenings include an exclusive Q&A with Helen Mirren and director Stephen Daldry.

For sixty years, Queen Elizabeth II has met with each of her twelve Prime Ministers in a private weekly meeting. This meeting is known as The Audience.  No one knows what they discuss, not even their spouses.

From the old warrior Winston Churchill, to the Iron Lady Margaret Thatcher, Tony Blair right up to today’s meetings with the current incumbent David Cameron, the Queen advises her Prime Ministers on all matters both public and personal.  Through these private audiences, we see glimpses of the woman behind the crown and witness the moments that shaped a monarch.

The Audience was presented in the West End by Matthew Byam Shaw for Playful Productions, Robert Fox and Andy Harries.
